Require Guests to Wait in Lobby (Waiting Room)

Control when participants can enter your Studio. Follow the steps below to add or remove the requirement that Guests and Producers wait in your Studio's Lobby.

When a Studio has a waiting room enabled, the Host or Producer must accept participants into the Studio. They see a prompt after the participant sets up their mic/camera on the Lobby page. Read more about participant roles.

Studios created in a Riverside Teams account have the waiting room enabled by default.
